Brotherhood of the Bell
I watched this movie years ago, pretty much close to when it came out. Very well done.
I downloaded this as a MPEG4 which is viewable on my pc but not really at full screen. However I'm very grateful to be able to download and view this movie which left a very strong impression at the time and without wishing to spoil the movie for anyone who hasn't watched really made me think about any kind of quid pro quo arrangement and was significant in that I saw this movie before I knew anything about Secret Societies. I would say as compelling view now as it was when it was made.
